In order to answer Q1, we need to know how much Jim need to pay.
Peter said:” I probably should pay a little more, so I could pay £110 and you could pay £80.” and Jim implied by saying:” Considering that my old apartment cost me £100 for a smaller room, I’m definitely alright with that!”. So the answer is £80.
In order to answer Q3, we need to know what is the place they can buy things from because Jim works there.Peter asked if Jim still works at the supermarket and Jim answer:”Yep“. Then Peter asked if Jim’s able to buy things from there if he send Jim a shopping list and Jim said:”Sure, I can do that.” Therefore, the answer is the supermarket.
In order to answer Q4, we need to know what fees they should share together.
Peter suggested:”that way we can split the cost of petrol.” and Jim said:”Works for me. It’s so expensive these days, isn’t it?”, then Peter answer:”It’s downright obscene.“(which means:”Yes, it is”)
the cost of is equal to fees.
So the answer is petrol.
In order to answer Q7, we need to know the location of the telephone.
Jim said he has a cool antique rotary phone and Peter said that it can be put only in the kitchen and explained. Jim then said:”Hm, okay, well I guess kitchen it is then.” as approval.
So the answer is kitchen.
PETER: Hey Jim, it’s Peter.
JIM: Oh hey Peter. What’s up?
PETER: I thought I’d call so we could hammer out the details for next year’s lease.
JIM: That’s a good idea. Did we ever decide on how to split the total rent?
PETER: Well, I was thinking since my room is bigger I probably should pay a little more, so I could pay £110 and you could pay £80. Does that sound okay?
JIM: Considering that my old apartment cost me £100 for a smaller room, I’m definitely alright with that! Hey, I was looking at a map of the area, and can’t seem to find a bus stop near it. Do you know where we would catch the bus?
PETER: Well, the bus is actually pretty far from us, but we have that garage that we can park our cars in.
JIM: Wow, that’s great! Convenient parking is hard to find, so we’re lucky we have that. Okay, so we have a whole lot of things we’ll need to buy when we move in - how do you want to split that up?
PETER: I was wondering - do you still work at the supermarket?
JIM: Yep, every Tuesday and Saturday.
PETER: Would you be able to buy things from there if I send you a shopping list?
JIM: Sure, I can do that.
PETER: Great. Then I can take care of whatever else we need that you wouldn’t get at a supermarket. If you want, I’ll pick you up from work that day and we can go to the apartment together.
JIM: That would be great, thanks.
PETER: No problem - that way we can split the cost of petrol.
JIM: Works for me. It’s so expensive these days, isn’t it?
PETER: It’s downright obscene.
JIM: So let’s figure out what appliances we need. Do we have a microwave?
PETER: Yes, the landlord’s providing that for us. Hey, do you still have that space heater though? We need one for the kitchen since it’s not connected to the central heating.
JIM: Oh, right, I’ll bring that. Anything else?
PETER: Well, I have some dining room and living room furniture I can bring, so that should take care of most of the big stuff. You know what we do need though? Could you bring a toaster?
JIM: I actually don’t have one. It doesn’t come with the microwave?
PETER: No, the landlord is only supplying the microwave. It would really help if you could bring one.
JIM: Okay, I’ll pick one up at the store. You know, I also have this cool antique rotary phone that would be a cool addition to the apartment. Sort of as decoration and utility.
PETER: Oh cool! The only thing is, we’d have to put it in the kitchen, unless you want it in your room.
JIM: Why not put it in the living room?
PETER: The living room is too loud to have a phone conversation. The noise sort of carries, so if one person is trying to watch TV or have friends over the person on the phone won’t be able to hear.
JIM: Hm, okay, well I guess kitchen it is then. Any other big things we need? That seems like everything.
PETER: That’s all I can think of. And of course, move-in is -
JIM: June 1st. I can’t wait. We’ll be able to watch the big game in our new apartment - it’s going to be awesome!
PETER: Yeah, we can move in in the morning and then Friday night we can sit back and cheer on Liverpool.
JIM: I have an exam in the morning, but will be done around 11 a.m. and can move in after. Wait...Liverpool? You’re joking, right? I thought you were a Manchester United fan?
PETER: MAN U? No way! Liverpool all the way!
JIM: Oh no. I don’t know if I can live with a Liverpool fan...
